Egg Shell Collages

Do you still have dyed eggs in your refrigerator?  Here is the perfect way to make good use of your resources!  Of the many crafts and activities I pinned to my Easter board over the past few weeks this Colored Eggshell Art from Tutus and Tea Parties was one I purposefully made time for.   My boys love process art, and I knew we would have plenty of dyed egg shells after Easter.  With the hard boiled egg itself, why not try this Mayo-less Egg Salad  from The Good Long Road?

JZ (4) helped me peel the shells off of the eggs.  This is a great exercise for fine motor skills.

We dyed 18 eggs, so we had a nice stash of shells.

Squeezing glue is one of JZ's favorite parts of crafting.

J-Bug (3) freely squirted his glue over the paper.

JZ used his hands to spread a few shells on his page.

J-Bug wanted to dump the whole container of shells onto his.

After adding his shells, J-Bug squeezed more glue on top to help them stick.  It's definitely about the process with toddlers.
